Does anyone else NOT want to plan their wedding?

First off don't hate me LOL I'm just not that into this...

So this is my 3rd marriage. The 1st was a JP wedding, no planning, no reception. My 2nd...I actually planned the whole thing, dates set, deposits made etc etc and I found out I was getting deployed so we married in the pastors office and I got deployed a month later.  2 years later I replanned the SAME wedding (yes i know shoot me it was a PPD I didnt know that was wrong at the time!!!) and we renewed our vows. (Unfortunatly only one of us was serious about hose vows!)

Anyway...after all of that I really get no joy over planning a wedding. Thankfully my fiance doesnt want a big wedding and we are just going to do a vegas thing and a party (not a reception) after.

Is there anyone else here that is in the same boat and really isnt that "into" planning? All I know is I want to marry the man I love and thank God I found someone who didn't see a twice divorced single Mom and run!

  • Congratulations!! And welcome to the board!! 

    There is nothing wrong with not wanting to plan a big to-do. Have the wedding you want, and can afford.  Some of the ladies on this board had planned elopements, some had intimate ceremonies, some went to the JoP.  There isn't a wrong way to get married. 


  • I totes was NOT into wedding planning. I wanted a small ceremony and reception, 20 people tops, and done! My FI however wants the whole shebang! Gosh darn it!!!! But now I'm getting kind of into it. I know I can do it without spending too much and in excited to marry the man I love. I am stressed about the food and dj and stuff and would NOT want to do that again if I hadndone it the first time!

    I don't think anyone will blame you or hate you lol
  • If it wasn't for Vegas I would just hire a wedding planner and say "do what you want here is your budget, tell us when to show up" I just have too much other stuff to worry about. LOL We are going to have a really good time in Vegas!

  • I'm 3 times divorced and  single mom. I have some of the same feelings you do. I'm leaning towards Vegas :-)
